Break free from acne breakouts. Put your best face forward with a few simple, yet effective, acne fighting actions. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Clean your skin

    Use over-the-counter treatments containing benzoyl peroxide, such as Stridex Clear Gel, Clearasil Maximum Strength Acne Treatment, or Oxy Oil-Free Maximum Strength Acne Wash to treat mild acne outbreaks

  • Use acne-fighting lotions

    Lotions that contain niacinamide gel (4%) and tea tree oil (5%) can be helpful

  • Try zinc

    60 to 90 mg a day of this mineral improves some people’s acne

  • Add copper

    If taking extra zinc, your body will need 1 to 2 mg each day of copper to avoid deficiency of this mineral
